Thursday, 17 August 2006
Paul Haslinger, former member of Tangerine Dream, has been nominated for an Emmy for the score to 'Sleeper Cell: Season 1" in the category of Outstanding Music Composition For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special
Season 2 of Sleeper Cell is now in production and Paul is once again scoring the series for Showtime

Paul Haslinger has made a name for himself in scoring music for televison, filmas and computer games besides recording muisc CD's. After his Dream period, Haslinger released three solo albums and scored two landmark animated science-fiction films, Planetary Traveler and Infinitys Child. He continued perfecting his film scoring skills as the programmer for Graeme Revell, supplying memorable textures and atmospheric style to Blow, the Negotiator, The Siege, Pitch Black, and Tomb Raider, to name a few.

Haslinger earned his first solo credit as a film composer for the 2000 movie Cheaters, directed by John Stockwell. Since then, he has worked on Stockwells Crazy/Beautiful, Blue Crush, and last summers Into The Blue, starring Jessica Alba and Paul Walker.

2002 found Haslinger composing and producing musical segments for Steven Spielbergs thriller Minority Report. In 2003, Haslinger scored Len Wisemans Underworld, his first film to open ..1 at the US box office. In recent years, Haslinger has made a conscious effort to expand and diversify his work. His score for the Ubisoft/Xbox release Far Cry: Instincts was enthusiastically received by the gaming community; while his work on the Golden Globe and now Emmy nominated series SleeperCell (Showtime) received wide critical acclaim for its integration of Western and Middle Eastern music elements. He continues to be in high demand as a film composer and is currently working on three upcoming feature releases, Turistas (dir.John Stockwell), The Fifth Commandment (dir Rick Yune), and Crank (dir Neveldine/Taylor), in addition to the videogame Rainbow Six: Vegas (Ubisoft) and the second season of Sleeper Cell (Showtime).

Haslingers vision embraces film, games, albums and live performance in a modern musical world without boundaries.

Al Di Meola - New CD and Tour
Latest News - Music News
Thursday, 17 August 2006
On Consequence of Chaos, the legendary guitar hero and composer Al Di Meola delivers a searing, high caliber recording brimming with colorful and complex arrangements. Due at retail on September 26, 2006, Di Meola’s fifth Telarc album offers a contemporary set of fifteen original, genre-blurring compositions.

While Di Meola has sold more that six million records (including three gold albums) and won countless guitar awards in his prolific career, the jazz fusion pioneer has done something even more important in the process: he’s continued to push himself and his music forward.

“This is really a new and refreshing period for me,” says Di Meola. “This recording marks my return to playing solid-body electric guitar in the context of modern concepts and composition. I love the energy and the fact that I have reconnected to my first love.”

Di Meola’s restlessly creative spirit is joined on Consequence of Chaos by a stellar group of supporting players. Rounding out the core team are keyboardist Mario Parmisano, drummer/percussionist Ernie Adams and percussionist Gumbi Ortiz. The roster of special guests includes pianist Chick Corea, drummer Steve Gadd, keyboardist Barry Miles, bassists John Patitucci and Victor Miranda, and percussionist Kornel Horvath.

“My group has been playing countless years together around the world,” says Di Meola, “and our love of playing is even more evident on this recording.”

The followup to the critically acclaimed Flesh on Flesh (released on Telarc in 2002), Consequence of Chaos was produced by Di Meola and is dedicated to the memory of recording engineer David Baker.

The album begins with the deep grace and forward-thinking lyricism of “San Marco (Moderna)” and “Turquoise,” then shifts to the Eastern overtones of “Tao” and “Black Pearls.” Along the way, Di Meola’s awesome technique manifests itself in many ways: from the paint-peeling guitar work of “Odyssey” and “Red Moon” (one of two tracks featuring Chick Corea) to the challenging rhythmic syncopation of “Hypnose,” Tempest” and “Africana Suite.” Other highlights include the dreamy and introspective “Azucar,” and the heartfelt ballads “Cry for You” and “San Marco Vecchio.”

Di Meola’s electric guitar playing is what first garnered him an international following in the mid-1970s, when the young Berklee student joined Corea’s seminal fusion group Return To Forever.

“Chick was delighted to be a part of the project,” says Di Meola. “I knew he would just tear it up on ‘Red Moon.’ I think it’s some of the best playing I’ve ever heard from him. Our duet piece, ‘Cry for Me,’ was one of the best interactions I’ve ever had with any musician. Chick is truly superhuman on every musical level.”
